I was going to ask that too.

It would be nice to see a developer from out of town bring something to the table.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

Wow. Isn't it a bit odd that they (Ryan) couldn't land a chain for this project?

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

So does this count as us losing another Fortune 500 company? Yep. If the US government doesn't reduce corporate taxes and simplify the tax code, we are going to see more and more U.S. companies move their headquarters overseas. Medtronic has been the largest company to relocate overseas and their m...

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

Looks like the Twin Cities might be losing another Fortune 500 company. Medtronic is looking to acquire London-based Smith & Nephew. If it does, the company will move its headquarters to London.

Re: TCF Tower

Denver has a looooooong way to go surpass Minneapolis' skyline. I just spent the Memorial weekend there and stayed downtown. There really isn't building of note, it really a large grouping of bland Multi Foods type towers. Nothing there approaches the "big 3" in Minneapolis. Second the core is spre...

I can't imagine how the folks in charge of Rhymesayers are cool with that... Perhaps a few of them live in the Shakopee area and worked out a deal with Canterbury Park.

I would be okay with it as the Caspian is one of the most overrated restaurants in the Twin Cities.

Re: Portland Tower

This is entirely your speculation, with no actual evidence to support that claim. Site work for 4Marq was suppose to begin in December 2013. Last time I checked there wasn't any activity. Furthermore, downtown apartment vacancy rates have doubled since last year. How much more evidence do you need?...

Seeing that 4Marq can't get off the ground, I doubt there is enough demand for this one. It would be nice though.

Apparently Kelly Doran informed the members of the Dinkytown Business Association that being it doesn't collect membership dues or elect officers, it doesn't exist.

Because Minnesotans hate change. How dare a developer construct a tower taller than IDS without gaining approval from the public first.
